Women Suffer More Zoom Fatigue

Parent Interventions

A study by the University of Stanford has revealed that ‘Zoom fatigue’ is greater in women than men. The data revealed that one in seven women or 13.8% felt ‘very’ to ‘extremely’ fatigued by Zoom calls. Researchers surveyed 10,322 participants in February and March. Self-focused attention triggered by the self-view in video conferencing was the cause of exhaustion in women. Women answered questions related to feeling about seeing yourself than men. In short, prolonged self-focus creates ‘mirror anxiety’ which was seen higher in women and one solution was to turn off ‘self-view'. Video conferencing also limits movements and opportunities to take tea breaks are not there as in face-to-face meetings.
